Preparing an externally funded proposal involves collaboration between the Principal Investigator (PI) and various members of the IUP Research Institute (RI) and university administration. A Pre-Award Grant and Contract Specialist (GCS) can guide you in preparing the various parts of the proposal (cover page, narrative, budget, etc.).

Please submit the Notice of Intent form as soon as you have identified a proposal that may fit your research agenda/creative activities. Upon receipt, a Pre-Award team member at the RI will assign your proposal to a GCS and they will contact you to begin the process. Please note that the earlier you submit your Notice of Intent, the more assistance the GCS can provide.
